quote privacy and that is going overboard. edward snowden himself when he was interviewed in the "washington post" said the following about what he thinks is lax oversight. the issue was basically what entitled snowden to take on the responsibility of being the oversight. the whole question who elected you inverts the model, he said. they elected me the overseers. he named the chairs of the senate and house intelligence committee, both of you, dianne feinstein he said elected me when she asked softball questions in committee hearings. mike rogers elected me when he kept these programs hidden. the fisa court elected me when this he decided to act on things they were never intended to do. the system failed comprehensively and each level of responsibility that should have addressed this abdicated their responsibility.

lawmakers and suggested russia may have helped edward snowden get a hold of the intelligence documents and leave the country. we want to begin with those developments. democrats -- the li host: also, join the conversation on twitter or post a comment on facebook. and you can also e-mail us -- host: the headline in "the new .ork times" this morning leaders on the sunday shows saying edward snowden may have gotten help from the spy services while he at the national security agency building -- excuse me, facility is the word i am looking for -- in hawaii before he leaked the document. i want to show you what my grog -- mike rogers had to say, republican who sits on the house intelligence committee. chairman of the committee. he was on "mid-the press -- "meet the press." was ast of all, if it privacy concern he had, he did not look for information on the privacy side for americans, he was feeling information with pat -- that had to do with how we operated overseas to collect information to keep americans safe. that begs a question. and some of the things he did were beyond his te
seen momentum prior to the snowden revelations. there would have been to people in congress that would have voted to start restricting nsa activities. after his revelations, there were almost the majority. they are five votes short of the majority. i am seeing that progression of american citizens who are beginning to worry about all the surveillance. if you of your books on the subject, "the shadow secrets," tody of name a few. has the nsa surveillance program uncovered any planned terrorist attack? just looking at the different programs, when the nsa came out they said there were 54 programs they helped stop and they keep reducing those. on the metadata program, which is the most controversy oprah program -- program,roversial there has only been one incident that they have been able to detect since 2001, and that was a person in san diego who sent $8,000 to a group in somalia and had nothing to do with united states. positiven't been any things that have come out of that metadata program. the other ones, the 53 other part of awere different program, called the prison program. that is

surprises in the review report, because it wasn't a feature in any of the snowden leaks, involved the f.b.i.'s issuance of national security letters, which are demands in national security communication tozz turn over basic information. these are done without perspective judicious review and they are done at a very low level of the bureau. they are quite controversial. they have nothing to do with the snowden leaks. and the review level, i think it was the second recommendation quite high up in the review group reports said this stuff needs to be subject to prospective judicial review. this did not go over well at the f.b.i. and the f.b.i., unlike the 215 program, a few hundred queries a year, this is thousands and thousands and thousands of requests. so this is really part of the daily bread and butter of f.b.i. there was a real interagency squabble over this, and the bureau won. and the president actually sounded a lot like -- in his speech sound aid fair bit like the f.b.i. director did in a discussion that the "new york times" reported on or some other media reported on a few week

have been helping edward snowden and also expressing real concern about safety for the coming olympics. just give me your reaction to that. >> i share the chairman's concern about what the russian intelligence services may be doing with mr. snowden. i don't have any particular evidence, but one of the things that i point to when i talk about this is that the disclosures that have been coming recently are very sophisticated in their content and sophisticated in their timing. almost too sophisticated for mr. snowden to be deciding on his own. seems to me he might be getting some help. >> schieffer: and what about the coming olympics, are you concerned about the lack of cooperation that the russians seem to be giving us? >> long history of cooperation between nations who are hosting an olympics and the united states government and united states intelligence community in particular. and we did not get that cooperation with the russians. so i share the chairman's concern about the safety of the olympics. >> schieffer: why do you think that is? just the russians being the russians o

and that is why it is imperative that mr. snowden came forward and shining a light on this. >> in fact, on twitter asking are you anticipating the progress. there is going to be a lot of em fi -- empty rhetoric. very little substance. no actual recourse for violations. no substantiative reform. >> you know -- >> go ahead. >> no, go ahead. >> you know, i was going to say, there are a couple of changes that he's proposing that are decent ones, like putting an advocate in the court and no longer is the government the only side showing up when it is time to argue whether or not toish issue a warrant. the his interest when there is a controversy the approach is pretending you are changing things and not actually to change it. it is a really big mistake to look at the end of this process as the very, the most, it is just the beginning. of course, there is not serious change proposed by president obama. no president wants to give up surveillance power. they are forced to do that. the key is for the public pressure to build, demand more changes to happen. look at this as the first step an
